Vera Loy

Biography

I have brown eyes and red hair, some weeks redder than others! The rest is subject to change without notice. I live in Australia with my family and two cats, the cats rule.

After thirty years of working with the unemployed, coping with threats, tears and broken lives (and these were only from fellow staff), I decided it was time to make my escape. And what better place to go than the world of regency romance? I started writing this story years ago, but put it aside due to work and family commitments.

A few years ago, I dusted off the foolscap pages stored under my bed, finished the story and turned it into a book, Regency Masquerade.

Since then I have published three collections of short stories. Beach Apples, all with an Australian theme, and two books of science fiction, Star Clash and Splinters of Glass. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them.
